Coyote Hills Glow Ball Moonlit Golf Tournament

 There will be a Orange County Glow Ball Golf Tournament on November 19th (11/19/11).
Coyote Hills Golf Course had its first annual “Glow Ball Golf Tournament”. Tee-off was at 6:30pm on a night with a Full Moon.

At first you might think.”Golf at Night?!?”

Yup! It was quite fun!

The tournament was 2 Man Best Ball, 9 hole shotgun start, on the back 9. Each player was given 2 glow golf balls, and could buy 1 more. Three balls maximum for each player. If a player lost all three balls, then they were out, or at least could not qualify for any prizes awarded in the tournament.

At first most golfers signing in were worried they would loose 3 balls easily and be done. But it turned out, you really had to shank one to loose it. Since the balls glow very bright, you can find the ball even if it was deep in the bushes.

How hard was it?

Well, at first it was quite difficult to get good contact. Its a but hard to square up the club face and also judge height, distance, etc. But after 15-20 minutes, your eyes adjust much more, the moon got higher and brighter in he sky and it was much easier.

Some golfers claimed, “I never want to play in sunlight again, only moonlight”, others whom had fun, but fell apart in the dark, (our group did on 3 holes).

How did the golf ball perform ??

Most golfers we talked to said about “2 Clubs” or 15% to 20% less distance. But once playing short game, the balls seem less different than a real ball. Putting was a bit awkward, the ball seem to have more bounce of the putter face.

How was it set-up ??

  • Small glowing pumpkins lit the tee box markers (mostly all front tees to shorten holes).
  • Red Glow sticks in the middle of the fairway, every so often to help “guide you”.
  • Each flag had a flashing glow top, to show you the position
  • Each cup had a bright glow bracelet inside to help you chip and putt.
  • Each golfer got a few glow sticks to wear or place on golf bag to help show other golfers where they were on the course.
PROS

  • It was a whole lot of fun!
  • It was a night all the players will always remember
  • The buffet dinner before the round was excellent
  • And as always the customer service from the Coyote Hills Staff was amazing
CONS

  • Hard to judge distance on shots
  • Hard to tell how far the golfers in front of you really are
  • Had to sign a safety waiver. (but its understandable, your playing golf at night)
What would we change about it ??

Probably not much, one thing for sure, would be to change how the holes were marked for distance at night.

They did have red glow sticks as a basic guide but, we would suggest having the standard blue, white, and red markers for 200, 150, & 100 yardage markers.

We think it might help give players distances on shots and also help players see how far golfers in front of them really are. No one wants to hit into the group ahead.

It should be held “Quarterly“, or “Monthly” not “Annually“. Who wants to wait a whole year to play in the next “Coyote Hills Glow Ball Golf Tournament”?

Guess we will all have to wait !!

This tournament was fully booked a week in advance, with a long waiting list. If you plan to go the next one make sure to sign-up early.

We would like to take a moment and really thank Coyote Hills for being brave enough to open their night time tournament to the public, and putting on a great evening.

Holiday Season Shopping Ideas

For holidays coming up everyone is always looking for the unique gift idea. For a golfer, there are a lot of accessories, spoof gifts, products, and more.

So much its hard to keep up with the new stuff. We recently were introduced to Tattoo Golf and took a liking to to their sick golf gear.

This shirt is simple and very fashionable, made of very high quality materials, and comes in 3 different colors. Notice the hint of splattered blood, kinda cool but not too out-there.

Then there are the gifts needed for those whom already have everything, they are the hardest people to shop for.

Well we bet that they dont have these

Solid black golf balls !

We have seen many colored golf balls even clear ones, but we hadn’t come across these before. Get a sleeve of 3 for a stocking stuffer, or a full dozen.

Stop the Tax on Golf in California

Well we are going to open comments for this

What are your thoughts Californian’s ??

Is golf a luxury ??

Because that is what is seems to come down to.

Golf may have been only for the rich many years ago, but nowadays you don’t have to be rich to play. More kids play the sport more than ever before, it has become very popular over the recent years with young adults too. This high tax on golf will only make it harder for people to play.

The way some of us here see it:

Golf club memberships, county club memberships, and any courses over $200.00 a round per-person. Are clearly for people that can afford it. And can be considered a luxury. So we can understand their idea of a tax on that.

Partial Memberships” like the “Coyote Club” at Coyote Hills Golf Course. (It’s a great deal, you pay a few hundred bucks for a year, and you get a discount plus twilight an hour early.)

Is that a luxury for a person or just a person trying to save money and price down the cost ?

Should they be taxed too ?

We should be making golf more affordable for everyone to play, not making it harder and more expensive.

Yes some golf can be considered a luxury, but where is the line $100 a round $150 more ?

Golf teaches people ethics, good manners, to respect others,promotes good health, and the list goes on.

Mans body found on Tustin Ranch Golf Course

Just before 7am this morning (2/4/09) a groundkeeper at the course found the mans body on the green of the first hole of Tustin Ranch Golf Course.

It seemed to the police that the man did not come to play golf, and it turned out the the estimated time of dealth was actually 11pm the night before.

Sgt. Paul Garaven of the Tustin Police said: It looked like he came here to kill himself.

The man had died from a single gunshot wound. At this time the police are calling it a suicide, but they will be investigating this more.
